The American Express Format

This week will be a little different for a few reasons.

First, it is a pro-am event, meaning each professional will be paired with an amateur. Second, there are three courses at PGA West. Each professional and his amateur partner will play for three rounds at each of the courses —  PGA West (Stadium Course), La Quinta Country Club and PGA West (Nicklaus Tournament Course) — before the low 65 pros (and ties) will play the final round at PGA West’s Stadium Course.
